    Hello everyone,

    I'm a student due to graduate this year, from a software and game development course. I have always been hugely interested in business and studied it on the side as a hobby; feeling the pressure to development my own business, as my entire family has never been employed and always run their own small local businesses.

    As the geek of the family, I was naturally inclined to seek online methods of making money - struggling desperately to transmogrify my skills learned from my course into a source of income.

    After digging desperately through all of the fluff and rubbish online, I've found the odd gem here and there about affiliate marketing, drop-shipping, etc. A few interesting marketers, whom advice I have attempted to utilise, speak highly of such forums and this one in particular seems to have an interesting and helpful community.

    I look forward to learning from your wisdom and sharing my own experiences and advice once I, hopefully, cash in on one or more implementations. I hope I didn't bore you, I didn't want to be skimp out on saying hi; as hopefully we can collaborate.

    I look forward to hearing from all of you.

    Warmest regards,

    Thank you for such a warm welcome everyone!

    I've encountered CPI on my person Instagram and I was curious about the potential to make money with it by redirecting followers and such.

    I would be very much interested in exploring this new trend and I'm open to collaborate and share ideas :)

    CPI through Instagram seems only legit free method to generate traffic.
    Do you run TDS or rotator? Many networks (first of all, we) provide services to fully monetize all your traffic.

    What TDS makes: depending on click geo (also OS, mobile operator etc), the platform forwards user on right offer.
    What rotator makes: rotating offer through single link, so you don't have to target on specific offer, you just send the whole traffic on one link.

    This 2 things improve ROI and help fully monetize.
    And, well, we provide both completely free :)

    Hello @Abe Wyldon , welcome to AffiliateFix! Thanks for joining us.

    Interesting experiences and background. It's great to hear of our reps on the net. We are a great community of awesome marketers at every level. I'm sure you will fit right in and develop some solid relationships here.

    Use this forum as a mentor. It's full of members at every level of experience which makes for many balanced perspectives for a Newbie to learn from. Take the time to read through the forums here and see for yourself that the Newbies achieving success have actually dedicated themselves to success in this industry and reaping the rewards by following the advice of fellow AffiliateFix members, being dedicated to success, putting the time in, and making the necessary investments. You cannot shortcut the learning curve. It goes slower for some and it goes faster for others. Everyone has their own intellectual absorption rates, skill development pace, commitment level, and budgets.

    You are a FIX'er now and that means you have the world at your feet with IM. Here are a few suggestions:

    Read and learn through extensive reading in this community. Select one vertical. one tracker, and one traffic source. Learn from your fellow members here to master each one of them (a couple of months). Then you can expand and replicate your successes.

    As a Newbie, you need to read, study, invest, and implement. Perseverance, dedication, and taking action are the cornerstones of the success you will obtain.

    Read through the various areas of the forum to learn about the types of marketing available for your new business. Make a list of all the types of marketing and take some notes along the way. Then determine which area of marketing with which you will start your journey.

    Do this to select an area of marketing to start, as well, do this to select a tracker, a traffic source, and to select a vertical.

    Then read up on the affiliate networks and select two to begin with that will serve your needs and the types of offers you would like to promote. Put your application in and they will call you for an interview. Be professional and be prepared to answer some questions about how you will promote offers, do you have a website, are you a Newbie, etc. Please note, if you join the Dojo, we have a thread there that can offer assistance in getting accepted to some of the networks.

    Now that you have selected a basis to begin, read all of the threads in this forum that relate to your initial selections so that you have a rudimentary understanding of their features and benefits.

    You will require some investment. A VPS server, domains, traffic, landing pages, etc. You will need a budget for daily, weekly, and monthly expenses. This will change over time and you will need to update it often so that you know exactly what your costs and earnings are.

    This is where it all starts to earn. You must now begin to implement what you have established as your foundation for your business.

    Here is some advice and guidance that will help you establish your initial goals:

    Make sure you complete the following first.

    Every business needs:

    1. a plan
    2. a schedule for research, learning, and execution
    3. a budget.

    Remember to read through our WIKI and get to know the basics as well as some of the buzz words in the industry.

    I also recommend reading the following thread:

    As a Newbie, What Stops You From Getting Started

    Here is a set of immediate goals:

    1. Get a VPS
    2. Select a vertical
    3. Select a tracker
    4. Select a couple of networks and get your approval
    5. Select a traffic source
    6. Create a schedule for researching, learning (training), and working. This is a business, treat it as such!
    7. Create a budget for every expense (daily, weekly, monthly)
    8. Be very active in this forum by researching, asking questions, helping others when you are able.

    As well, I highly recommend you join the DOJO as it is full of great tools and contributions for successful marketers. Click the banner below to learn more.


    Remember This! : Nothing has to be perfect before you start. Read & study, but invest and implement at the same time. You cannot learn all of it from reading and studying. A great deal of your learning comes from implementing!

    Good Luck!

    I've set-up a domain with hosting and currently I am sending traffic from social media pages to my website, which offers free value glossing over topics and have amazon affiliate links placed in; as this was my first true attempt, I scripted it with HTML and CSS and I have some more tidying up to do on it.

    I am looking to expand into other niches, using WordPress to test a niche faster with a plugin such as WooCommerce (which transforms your blog into a shop) which I am currently reading into now.

    Lastly, I am completely new to PPI and it does seem very interesting. If you have any posts, articles or other info I can read about that'd be really awesome.

    @T J Tutor

    Thank you, I hope to learn a lot from this community and to begin contributing back as soon as possible!

    I am unfortunately unfamiliar with the VPS, vertical and trackers etc.
    This is something I will be looking into shortly and seeking where to begin!

    Right now I would say I am scattering my seeds far and wide, whilst getting to grips with new tools, to see which take root.
